Popular Mixer streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has starred in a hilarious advertisement for Xbox’s PC Game pass.

Shroud announced that he would be leaving Twitch to sign with Microsoft’s broadcasting platform, Mixer, back on October 24, joining fellow superstar Ninja who had also made the transition.

Despite some concerns from fans, Shroud has already amassed a following of over 1.1 million on the livestreaming site and has continued to entertain fans with his mastery across multiple titles.

As Shroud has proven time and time again, he is among the best when it comes to adapting to new releases, so when it was revealed that he would be starring in an advertisement for Xbox’s Game Pass on PC, it was the perfect fit for the former CS:GO pro.

Shroud shared a full look at the subscription service’s advertisement on April 24, however, it was quite bizarre for fans who were used to seeing the streamer in a more relaxed setting.

The 45-second clip featured Shroud hilariously multitasking “mid-air,” playing Halo on PC while also para-gliding and feeding a pet beaver that was strapped to his chest, for no apparent reason.

Of course, the clip later reveals that shroud’s impressive feat was simply performed by the use of a green screen, parodying what goes into making such advertisements.

Fellow streamers such as TimTheTatman praised the Mixer star’s acting abilities.

The ad promoted the streamer’s Mixer channel as well as the Xbox’s Game Pass, though it is likely that any new viewers will be greeted by a much more relaxed shroud compared to the one in the ad.

This is not the first time that a Mixer streamer has promoted another one of Microsoft’s products, as Ninja was also featured in an promotion alongside Mark Hamill for an Xbox and Fortnite event.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
